Structural Health Monitoring in Sensor-integrated Smart Composites
  • Presents a comprehensive focus on sensor systems embedded in composite materials which provide the “monitoring” feature of this engineering design.
  • Summarizes the fundamentals of structural health monitoring systems including the principles, characterization, and challenges presented by fabrication and signal processing methods.
  • Includes two expanded case studies with analyses of challenges, testing methods, and solutions.
  • Provides a detailed description of the testing methods used in these examples to understand how the novel sensors work in monitoring the condition of composite woven fabrics.
